"Your business model canvas has been extremely useful in refining the business plan and giving direction to its implementation. I think what’s so good about it is that it has enabled me to see and understand things that I wasn’t able to see for myself.
I approach these matters with quite a lot of experience, but of course that prism of experience also distorts and limits what I see. The business model canvas has helped me overcome those limitations, and has been an interesting experience in itself."

"Ben quickly tuned in not only to the business concept but to working through the sticking point that presented the main challenge at that point.
His style is concise, direct and friendly providing the rare and valuable combination of technology expertise with an appreciation through experience of the importance of sales and marketing to define and test the process underpinning any technology.
Ben is sincerely interested in creating the best way forward to enable business growth and success, which may mean the outcome of his involvement forms a crucial and perhaps unexpected pivot point for your business."
"Ben is a genius at using common sense to solve your problems, correcting their current way and helping them set realistic goals. He will analyse your situation in a heartbeat, and immediately create a realistic plan for improvement."
